Devonian Regional Park in Victoria BC

by hwilde on August 27, 2012

Devonian Regional Park is a small oceanside nature sanctuary in the municipality of Metchosin.  Forested trails wind along Sherwood Creek down to the cobble beach, where you can enjoy watching for wildlife and gorgeous views across Juan de Fuca Strait to the Olympic Mountains.  If you’re on horseback there is a designated equestrian trail to the beach.

Birdwatchers should check out Sherwood Pond; a great spot to see migrating waterfowl.  Other wildlife you might see include river otters, harbour seals or on a very good day, orcas!  The trails at Devonian Park are rated easy to moderate, so a wide range of visitors can enjoy this beautiful park.

How to Get to Devonian Regional Park

Take the Trans-Canada Highway from Victoria, and take exit #10 (Colwood). Follow this route which turns into Sooke Road. Turn left on Metchosin Road, which turns into William Head Road at the Happy Valley Road intersection. Follow William Head Road until you see the Devonian Regional Park sign on the left. It takes about 40 minutes to reach the park from Victoria.  The park is open from sunrise to sunset.  Visiting one of our beautiful regional parks is one of the best things to do in Victoria BC!


Victoria BC Realtor Heather Wilde was raised and educated in Winnipeg. After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC. Heather was licensed as a Realtor in 1976 and since then has worked hard to achieve a high standard of performance; consistently attaining a Victoria Real Estate Board MLS Gold Award. If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.
